SLOW PUNCTURE
Previous | 1 | Next

got a slow puncture on th o/s front tyre of the alfa.
Keep having to top it up and always have to use up all my change to use the compressor for just a few seconds .

PITA

Anyhow whats the best funk to use to sort it out

(1) Buy a compressor such as this, which won the Auto Express test, so you can top up the air at home.

(2) Get the thing repaired asap :D You could do it yourself if you can find the nail/screw/whatever using one of these, though I believe they're not strictly authorised in the UK any more, so just go to your nearest tyre place and pay £15 or less.

Was hoping to avoid a trip to a fitters by just using some tube of funky stuff

to the tyre fitters i go

The funky stuff would be something like Tyreweld or the rubber goo which is often in tyre repair kits; that's only ever a temporary fix to get you to the tyre fitter.

Hoewever, that eBay puncture repair stuff is basically permanent... Do some reading up on it before you choose to buy or use it, though. It's known as a string repair.

I've got one which loses about 10psi per week, enough that it needs topping up, not enough that I can find where it's leaking from, or be bothered to get it fixed.
